"If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)" as written by Jimmy Johnson and Henry Creamer....
I'm so blue, I don't know what to do,
All day through, I'm pining just for you
I did wrong when I let you go away,
For now I grieve about you night and day.
I'm unhappy and dissatisfied,
But I'd be happy if I had you by my side.

[Chorus:]
If I could be with you, I'd love you strong,
If I could be with you, I'd love you long,
I want you to know I wouldn't go,
Until I told you, honey, why I love you so.
If I could be with you one hour tonight,
If I was free to do the things I might,
I'm telling you true, I'd be anything but blue,
If I could be with you.
All dressed up but still nowhere to go,
How I wish that I could see a show,
But here I wait with no one to call me dear,
The one I love is many miles from here.
Central, give me one-two-three-four-J,
Oh won't you listen, little sweetie, while I say.

[Chorus:]
If I could be with you, I'd love you strong,
If I could be with you, I'd love you long,
I want you to know I wouldn't go,
Until I told you, honey, why I love you so.
If I could be with you one hour tonight,
If I was free to do the things I might,
I'm telling you true, I'd be anything but blue,
If I could be with you.
